Andover

Andover is an unspoiled rural New England town nestled in the hills of Tolland County in Northeastern Connecticut.

Andover’s rural character remains unspoiled with farmlands, stone walls, and historic homes dotting the landscape. The original Town Hall of 1893 can be seen from Route 6 near the intersection with Route 316. The Old Town Hall now houses the town museum that is operated by the Historical Society. The current Town Office building is located on School Road between the town’s firehouse and the elementary School.

Settlement of the area began in the early 1700’s.  By 1747 there were enough homesteads in the area to support an ecclesiastical society.  The ecclesiastical society borders were the ones used 101 years later for the town.  At the time of Andover’s incorporation as a town, it’s population was about 500.   By the 21st century, the population grew to over 3,600 people.  The town currently has over 1,100 housing units, most being single family dwellings.
